All abstracts must be submitted online
Please indicate the type of submission listed below.
All submissions must include a thematic area (as listed above) you feel best suits your submission, in addition to a title, author information, and abstract of no longer than 150 words (with the exception of thematic panel abstracts which are no longer than 250 words). Abstracts should generally describe the theme of the presentation, and where relevant, the methods and results.
Individual paper submissions must include a title and abstract (written in English and no more than 150 words), and author information. These presentations are intended for individuals to discuss work that has been completed or where substantial progress has been made.
Importantly, presentations about work that has yet to begin or is only in the formative stage are not appropriate here and may be more suitable for a roundtable session. Papers are assigned to a panel with two or three other papers sharing a common theme or purpose (to the extent that this is possible).
Note there are a limited number of panel sessions. In the case that the number of received papers and panel proposals exceeds the time available for presentations, the organising committee will review the submissions.
Authors are permitted to submit more than one paper and to appear in several sessions. However, the committee reserves the right to exclude second and third papers from authors in order to allow as many speakers as possible to present.
All individual paper submissions must be submitted by 30th April.
Participants are welcome to propose a full panel session. Each thematic panel should contain between three and four papers and possibly one discussant. The panel organiser(s) must submit an abstract describing the panel (no more than 250 words) that contains the names of authors and titles for each of the papers to appear on the panel. Next, each individual paper abstract must be submitted by individual authors identified in the panel submission in the individual paper presentation submission site (above). We encourage panel submissions organised by individuals and other working groups.
All complete thematic panel submissions must be submitted by 30th April.
Roundtable sessions consist of three to four participants discussing related topics. These sessions are generally less formal than panel sessions, and typically do not involve the presentation of visual material. Roundtable discussion topics must also be accompanied by a title, abstract (written in English and no more than 250 words), and each individual participant's information.
All roundtable topic submissions must be submitted by 30th April.
